Congratulations to Winchester Thurston for winning Battle of the Burgh XX.

We had earlier declared that Allderdice A was the winner but made a stat error.

Official stats are now up!

I'm still working on getting the official numbers for the 12th round match between Central Catholic and Allderdice B.

There seem to still be a high number of anomalies in the statistics. Several rounds have bonus points with the teams ending in numbers with five, which is impossible. Considering this is not the first time UPitt tournaments have had wonky stats and the rest of the state could really use proper stats for the statewide awards and honors which have been instituted the past couple years, it would be most excellent if something could be done to stop this frequent problem from happening.

Am I the only one who is the least-bit confused about how a "stat error" could cause an announcement of the winner of a tournament to be incorrect?

They were a victim of the SQBS bug in which a game result isn't saved unless you navigate to another game first, so one game result got omitted from the standings they looked at.
